Quinn was not sure how he felt about this, he was still concerned. But he knew that Tyler was not going to back down, and for the immediate future, he was going to be acting captain of the USS Pioneer. Quinn tapped on his combadge as he looked to Tyler. "Commander Myles, report to the Captain's ready room." Quinn ordered, as he looked over to the door.

Tyler stood at the side of his desk as he finalized the temporary transfer of command and prepared to leave. "I guess it is time to clue in our Chief of Security." He said to Quinn. Tyler tried to keep as many people as possible in the dark about this.

Larim was going over some security arrangements when he got the call. He tapped his commbadge almost immediately. "Myles here. On my way he said. He left his office on deck 9 and headed straight for the nearest lift.

A short ride later he arrived on the bridge. He made a beeline past his security station and pressed the COs chime.

Quinn looked to Tyler, and waited for him to say enter. Even though command was temporarily being transferred to Quinn. However with that said, this is still his ship. And his ready room.

"Come on in." Tyler called to the closed door. When Larim walked in Tyler motioned to a chair in front of the desk. "Larim have a seat. Commander O Flannagain and I have something to discuss with you." Tyler added with a small amount of awkwardness. Truth was the Captain was uncomfortable with this situation. He was not sure how you tell someone they were going to be the temporary XO without telling them why.

Larim did just that, and entered to see both the Captain and XO. He assumed that they wanted to see him about security measures so he made himself comfortable as best he could and reported.

Tyler decided to let Quinn take point on this and waited for him to speak first. For the time being Tyler sipped his coffee and smirked.

"Commander Myles, I know you first reaction is to want to be by the Captain's side. But rest assure that Captain Tremble, will take good care of Captain Malbrooke. I want to start off by saying that first." Quinn said, trying to grab the attention of Larim. He hoped that was successful.

"Temporarily, Captain Malbrooke will be going on vacation." Quinn suggested in a questionable tone. But then pressed on. "He will be going on Vacation with Captain Tremble, and a few marines. While he is away I will be in command of the USS Pioneer, and I will need you to be my acting first officer, while I assume command of the ship." Quinn simply stated for the record. He was waiting to see how Larim reacted.

"Acting first officer." Larim said. He took a moment for it to sink in. In his mind he didn't really need to know why, although he had a pretty good idea. "You can count on me." he said with a nod.

"Excellent Larim. I know that with you by his side Quinn will do great things. I also hope that the two of you can bring my ship back in one piece." Tyler said with a beaming smile.

"One piece sir, wait now! That was not part of the deal." Quinn suggested in a teasing manner. He was trying to lighten up the tense moment.

Tyler laughed at Quinn's joke. "I don't even want to see a scratch on her. The official change of command will occur at 1500 hours tomorrow." He added. Tyler wanted to make sure that the ship's log showed an official change in command. A preventative measure designed to keep everyone save for him out of trouble.

"Understood sir, not a scratch. Number one, have a bottle of spray paint and an ev suit on standby." Quinn said, with a grin. Trying to see if he could get Larim to crack up smiling. The man was very serious.

"Racing stripes would be cool come to think of it." Larim grinned. "Or maybe flames."

"Alright then, I have a vacation to plan and you have a mission to plan for. I will have all data on the Jutai sent to you." Tyler said with a broad grin. He was glad that his officers were taking this all in stride. He started to make toward the door of the Ready Room. "I will leave you two to plan in your Ready Room..." His voice trailed off as he looked toward the coat rack. "Oh, I almost forgot, can't go on vacation without this." Tyler grabbed his father's cowboy hat and placed upon his head then hurried out the door.

"Good luck with your vacation." Was all that Quinn could get himself to say in response. He was still not very happy about the mission, but he understood why he was undertaking the mission.
